Astrid Balsink

Astrid Balsink, former Global Director for Inclusion and Diversity, spoke at the EBF Conference in 2018. She currently fulfills the role of Chief Diversity & Inclusion at the Danske Bank.

As the former Global Head of Inclusion and Diversity for Philips, she was building an ecosystem that creates a movement to drive sustainable change by involving all. Top down and bottom up.

With a background in journalism and having worked in different multi-nationals – amongst which Nike, Microsoft and DSM – she brought a strong track record in Communications and I&D. Fuelled by a holistic approach that involves head and heart anticipating on the human need to belong. “Diversity is being invited to the party; Inclusion is being asked to dance.”
